WISHBONE GOLD - Spring Tour 2019
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the formation of the original Wishbone Ash,
one of the most enduring and best-loved British rock acts.
Featuring full performance of Wishbone Ash’s classic 1976 album “New England”
Martin Turner and his band return to the concert stages to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the formation of the original Wishbone Ash.
The Spring 2019 Wishbone Gold tour will see Martin and his band performing 1976’s iconic New England album – as well as other favourites from the classic era of Wishbone Ash, including Argus highlights.
New England was written and recorded in the loose environment of a basement rehearsal facility set up at Martin Turner’s Connecticut home, resulting in an album that was brimming with live energy. With a mix of powerful rock numbers such as “Runaway” and “Mother of Pearl”, alongside melodic cuts like “Lorelei” and “You Rescue Me”, the album was an instant crowd-pleaser. The band’s twin-guitar hallmark had never sounded so vibrant as on the album’s instrumental showcase “Outward Bound” and New England highlighted all that was great about Wishbone Ash.
Martin Turner’s Spring 2019 shows will mark the very first time New England has been performed in its entirety on stage and this tour is an event that no Wishbone Ash aficionado will want to miss.
